Hospice is not just a place, but an approach to care that focuses on living.
The Dorothy Ley Hospice was founded over 30 years ago to offer compassionate care to people living with a life limiting illness, their family and caregivers. Today, we offer Community hospice care in your home, Residential Care in our 10-bed residential hospice, and grief and bereavement services.
“Spiritual care lies at the heart of hospice. It says we are here. We will be with you in your living and your dying. We will free you from pain and give you the freedom to find your own meaning in your own life – your way. We will comfort you and those you love – not always with words, often with a touch or a glance. We will bring you hope – not for tomorrow but for this day.
We will not leave you. We will watch with you. We will be there.”
